Carers' information day
SOUTH Somerset GP Practice Carers' Champions will be holding an open Information Day at Palmers Garden Centre in Yeovil on Wednesday, 4th September, from 10.30am to 4pm.
All those who care for someone - husband, wife, parent, child or friends and neighbours - are invited to come to discover what help is available to help them in their caring role. Some of the Carers' Champions will be there, as well as Carer Support and Assessment Workers and representatives from the Alzheimers Society. People don't always recognise themselves as carers because their caring role creeps up on them over the years and they accept it as something they just get on with. But there are all sorts of ways that they can improve their lives and the lives of those they care for and this day is intended to offer this information.
This is also an opportunity to meet other carers and share ideas and experiences.
There are 58,000 carers in Somerset alone and they, along with those in all the other counties, save the country £119 billion a year. They are a very valuable commodity and we need to do all we can to help them before they themselves become the ones who need to be cared for.
